Today I read parts of Pearl of Richmond School to the five fourth grade classes at Willow Creek Elementary School in the Fleetwood School District. They were a very attentive audience. When it was time for questions, their hands shot up. Here are some of their questions:
Where did the students go for kindergarten?
Did they have to take the PSSA’s?
How far did the students have to walk to get to the one-room school?
If there weren’t any water spigots, how did they wash their hands?
Where did they put on the Christmas play in the one-room school?
What would happen if a kid ran away?
And my very favorite question of the day was “When will you be famous?” I just laughed. Out of the mouths of children!
